Straight SAMMI specs for now. I've been reloading for a few years now, with very good results - but I haven't jumped to the stage where I'm tailoring the COL for each rifle.

Thanks for the questions, Dude.!
That is funny, I do the same; Referencing different manuals and take the average or most suggested starting load weight.

Thank you for posting your findings. Very interesting.

I've always gotten better results by bedding the actions and floating the barrels too
You are correct.
I find it interesting to see the change in different COL/powder weights and group sizes.
I am shooting a FNH PBR, a version of a Winchester 70 action.
